Veterans’ Affairs

Find the latest information from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) on retirement, the age pension, health care, housing, counselling services and other veterans’ information such as Military Compensation, the Rehabilitation Service and the Veterans’ Affairs Network (VAN).

You can also read up on the Gold Card and stay abreast of scams targeted at veterans.

Most veterans are paid the Age Pension or Disability Support Pension via the DVA and so the DVA should be the point of contact for any pension queries.
